Hi all;

Mike here; I've been fascinated with locks for as long as I can remember ,and been picking/repairing /rekeying for a few years now.

Thought its about time I joined a group so I can talk to other people about locks without getting weird looks and dumb questions like "are you allowed to do that" and "is it legal to have lock picks".

Don't know if its a sudden sense of belonging or I just got lucky,but this bad boy has been in my collection for a while now.
I've looked at it many times and got scared by the angry looking keyway and put it back in the box.
Today I thought I'd give it a go...

I was disappointed to find some rather rough filed key pins and an small piece of pin that fell out as I removed the core . Unfortunately in my haste to see whats else was inside , my sausage like fingers manged to drop everything and messed up the order,but it looks like I have found a rather shoddy master key system.

Hi Mike :welc:
Life is like a pubic hair on a toilet seat. Every once in a while, you get pissed off.

RIP the pick. If you have a poke about on the site you'll find a "Boulevard of Broken Picks" thread to put pics of picks that have gone to lock Valhalla.

Hello again,
I used the personal album here in the forum. Is there a way I can change to public on it?
